A positive education program of Gumdale State School
The GROW Well Program supports our GROW values and is centred around the wellbeing of staff and students. It is based on research from the field of Positive Psychology.
GROW Well understands and recognises that learning and wellbeing are connected. The GROW Well Positive Education mindset, explicit strength-based curriculum and approach to social and emotional learning ensures our students
GROW Well as they;
- realise their potential;
- cope with challenges;
- embrace opportunities;
- and contribute to their community
Students are supported to reach their full potential in learning, personal development and character.
- Each class will have explicit GROW Well lessons taught throughout the term.
- Lessons are designed specifically for Gumdale State School, drawing from a variety of evidence-based programs and tailored to meet the needs of our students.
- Each term, we will explicitly teach and practise 4 specific character strengths that align with our existing GROW framework.
GROW Well embeds 16-character strengths that underpin each value and support the wellbeing and social emotional learning of our students.
